It has added ~6,400 tinting machines, penetrating ~43% of its dealer network.

Maintaining a buy rating, Motilal Oswal said, "The Rs. 545 b Indian Paints industry is expected to post a robust ~12% CAGR over FY19-24E, driven by urbanization, the shortening of the repainting cycle, growth in branded players, and the robust pricing power of the branded players. In addition, the oligopolistic nature of the industry means that the incumbents have a considerable growth opportunity."
